Program Calendar

The MBOE program calendars are formatted to enable balance between your family, career, and education. While also making it possible for people to enroll who do not live in Columbus or Ohio. The dates are set well in advance making it very easy to plan accordingly. The MBOE and the MBOE for Health Care have six combined on-campus sessions together for collaborative learning.
